The SMART Conveyor™: High HP Energy Savings
BE&E recently quoted a mill for a system that would’ve reduced their energy usage by almost 98 percent. The pneumatic system currently in place at the mill blows the material to the top of the silo using 100 hp, but by replacing this system with two S-Series SMART Conveyors™, we could have accomplished the same feat using a mere 2.4 hp. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for mills to use far more energy than necessary because they’re comfortable with their current technology (i.e., they’ve always done it that way).
If you’re looking for a way to save energy costs, the SMART Conveyor™ is an ideal solution. This high-performance conveyor system can reduce energy consumption by nearly 98 percent over pneumatic systems and 50 percent over other mechanical systems while still providing the same level of productivity. Not only can the SMART Conveyor™ help you save money, but it also helps reduce your carbon footprint, making it an ESG-friendly and cost-effective choice.
What is the SMART Conveyor™?
The SMART Conveyor™ from BE&E is a drag chain conveyor system featuring a unique design that increases its efficiency and reduces energy consumption. With its heavy-duty construction, it offers strength and reliable performance for all types of material handling applications.
It also offers several advantages over other types of conveyors. Its modular design makes it easier to install and maintain. Additionally, it uses only a fraction of the power of other drag chain conveyors. This conveyor system also requires minimal maintenance and offers a long service life, meaning you’ll be able to use it for years to come. The SMART Conveyor™ also offers improved safety features that comply with the NFPA standards.
Why is it so effective?
The SMART Conveyor™ is engineered to be one of the most efficient conveyor systems available. Its unique design runs the chains in dedicated channels outside of the material path and keeps the paddles from touching the floor and sidewalls, helping to reduce unnecessary contact between metals. By effectively reducing internal friction, the conveyor uses less energy to move its components and can focus on moving the materials. This also reduces the wear on the conveyor and extends its life span.
